In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she's not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she'll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between. Originally published in 2007.
Download and read online In between in PDF and EPUB This book introduces a new category, in-between, that will have a far-reaching impact on classic ways of thinking. Husserl's description of consciousness and Whitehead's criticism of the prejudice of simple location are two starting points. Relativity theory's radical changes in the conception of space and time also motivate some of the lines of thought. The initial two chapters are devoted to preparatory analysis. The first presents an argument against visual reasoning; the second compares the role of relations to the role of terms. The balance of the volume discusses in-between in general, then its role in linguistics, history, ethics, and aesthetics, and finally in intersubjectivity and the faculties of the mind. Co-published with the Center for Advanced Research in Phenomenology.
Download and read online The In Between in PDF and EPUB We’re an “instant gratification” generation—but most change happens gradually. Many of us spend our lives searching and longing for something more than what is in front of us. Whether it’s traveling abroad or chasing cheap (or expensive) thrills, we’re all looking for the medicine to satisfy our restlessness. And so often we're looking in the wrong place. The In-Between is a call to accept the importance that waiting plays in our lives. Can we embrace the extraordinary nature of the ordinary and enjoy the daily mundane—what lies in between the “major” moments? Learning to live in this tension, to be content in these moments of waiting, may be our greatest struggle—and our greatest opportunity to grow.

Download and read online The Places In Between in PDF and EPUB Rory Stewart's moving account of his walk across Afghanistan in January 2002 was immediately hailed as a classic. Caught between hostile nations, warring factions and competing ideologies, at the time Afghanistan was in turmoil following the US invasion. Travelling entirely on foot and following the inaccessible mountainous route once taken by the Mogul Emperor, Babur the Great, Stewart was nearly defeated by the extreme, hostile conditions. Only with the help of an unexpected companion and the generosity of the people he met on the way did he survive to report back with unique insight on a region closed to the world by twenty-four years of war. Winner of the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Award and the Spirit of Scotland Award and shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize and the Scottish Book of the Year Prize.
Download and read online Women in Between in PDF and EPUB In 1971 Marilyn Strathern provided what has now become a classic ethnographic text, Women In Between. Significantly, this pioneering contribution to feminist anthropology focuses on gender relations rather than on women alone. Re-issued now, Women in Between examines the attitudes of the Hagen people and analyzes the power of women in their male-dominated system. Strathern cites case studies of marriage arrangements, divorce, and traditional settlement disputes to illustrate women's status in Hagen society.
Download and read online Something in Between in PDF and EPUB Be the first to read the thought-provoking new novel from Melissa de la Cruz, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Isle of the Lost and Return to the Isle of the Lost. She had her whole life planned. She knew who she was and where she was going. Until the truth changed everything. Jasmine de los Santos has always done what’s expected of her. She’s studied hard, made her Filipino immigrant parents proud and is ready to reap the rewards in the form of a full college scholarship to the school of her dreams. And then everything shatters. Her parents are forced to reveal the truth: their visas expired years ago. Her entire family is illegal. That means no scholarships, maybe no college at all and the very real threat of deportation. As she’s trying to make sense of who she is in this new reality, her world is turned upside down again by Royce Blakely. He’s funny, caring and spontaneous—basically everything she’s been looking for at the worst possible time—and now he’s something else she may lose. Jasmine will stop at nothing to protect her relationships, family and future, all while figuring out what it means to be an immigrant in today’s society. ***** “A great read!” —Rachel Cohn, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist “We’re obsessed—and you will be too.” —The Editors of Seventeen magazine “Heartbreaking and bursting with hope, this is the book we all need.” —Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Young Elites and Legend series “This book will change you.

Download and read online In between Places in PDF and EPUB "There is a map you decide to call a book. A book of the territories youÕve traveled. A map is a meaning you hold against the unknowing. The places you speak in many directions." For Diane Glancy, there are books that you open like a map. In-between Places is such a book: a collection of eleven essays unified by a common concern with landscape and its relation both to our spiritual life and to the craft of writing. Taking readers on a trip to New Mexico, a voyage across the sea of middle America, even a journey to China, Glancy has crafted a sustained meditation on the nature and workings of language, stories, and poems; on travel and motion as metaphors for life and literature; and on the relationships between Native American and Judeo-Christian ways of thinking and being in the world. Reflecting on strip mines in Missouri ("as long as there is anything left to take, human industry will take it") and hog barns in Iowa (writing about them from the hogs' perspective), Glancy speaks in the margins of cross-cultural issues and from the places in-between as she explores the middle ground between places that we handle with the potholder of language. She leaves in her wake a dance of words and the structures left after the collision of cultures. A writer who has often examined her native heritage, Glancy also asks here what it means to be part white. "What does whiteness look like viewed from the other, especially when that other is also within oneself?" And in considering the legacy of Christianity, she ponders "how it is when the Holy Ghost enters your life like a brother-in-law you know is going to be there a while." Insightful and provocative, In-between Places is a book for anyone interested in a sense of place and in the relationship between religion and our stance toward nature. It is also a book for anyone who loves thoughtful writing and wishes to learn from a modern master of language.
Download and read online Dreams and In Between in PDF and EPUB I think you will find this is not just another dream book since it includes some unique ideas as well as older views regarding the why and what of a dream. Over the years I have read many books offering a variety of ideas and theories on the subject, plus I took a thought provoking “dream study course” through the Edgar Cayce foundation. I will show you a simple way to outline and analyze your dream and help others if the need arises. It is not only fun to do, but it can often be very beneficial. I have included thirty-four of my personal dreams with their interpretations as examples. They cover a variety of subjects from spiritual to spooky and all the in-between. As you know, dreams can be a puzzle to solve especially when they contain a strange assortment of things and people. However, when you learn how to “connect the dots” it will help you solve the “puzzle.” Look inside for an easier way to analyze your “sleeping thoughts” plus a brief section on possible symbolic meanings. Happy dreaming!
Download and read online The In between of Writing in PDF and EPUB Why has the increased prominence of experimental writing in the postmodern era attracted so few women practitioners? The In-Between of Writing examines works by three very different writers to answer this question and to explore the relation of experience and literary experiment. In an effort to write themselves into literary history, to make a place from which they can write, to find a woman's voice and even a language, women have been writing more than ever and have been involved with new approaches to writing and reading. Yet postmodernism - a rubric for much of the experimental writing done since World War II - and feminism have largely failed to connect. What links the English novelist Margaret Drabble, the French novelist and filmmaker Marguerite Duras, and the German-American philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt in this study? In readings informed by psychoanalysis, semiotics, linguistics, and deconstruction, Skoller contends that each has a distinct relation to language and a close tie to world history that has remained largely untreated by feminist literary critics. Written at the nexus of feminism and postmodernism, this book makes startling connections between these three seemingly disparate women writers.
Download and read online Alice In Between in PDF and EPUB Finally, Alice is thirteen. But being a teenager isn't always as fantastic as Alice dreamed it would be. A sophisticated night on the town with her brother, Lester, and an overnight train trip to Chicago with Elizabeth and Pamela are exciting, but they also give her a first-hand look at some of the perils of grown-up life.

Download and read online Geographies of Girlhood in PDF and EPUB Geographies of Girlhood: Identities In-Between explores how adolescent girls come to understand themselves as female in this culture, particularly during a time when they are learning what it means to be a woman and their identities are in-between that of child and adult, girl and woman. It illuminates the everyday realities of adolescent girls and the real issues that concern them, rather than what adult researchers think is important to adolescent girls. The contributing authors take seriously what girls have to say about themselves and the places and discursive spaces that they inhabit daily. Rather than focusing on girls in the classroom, the book explores adolescent female identity in a myriad of kid-defined spaces both in-between the formal design of schooling, as well as outside its purview--from bedrooms to school hallways to the Internet to discourses of cheerleading, race, sexuality, and ablebodiness. These are the geographies of girlhood, the important sites of identity construction for girls and young women. This book is situated within the fledgling field of Girls Studies. All chapters are based on field research with adolescent girls and young women; hence, the voices of girls themselves are primary in every chapter. All of the authors in the text use the notion of liminality to theorize the in-between spaces and places of schools that are central to how adolescent girls construct a sense of self. The focus of the book on the fluidity of femininity highlights the importance of race, class, sexual orientation, and other salient features of personal identity in discussions of how girls construct gendered identities in different ways. Geographies of Girlhood: Identities In-Between challenges scholars, professionals, and students concerned with gender issues to take seriously the everyday concerns of adolescent girls. It is recommended as a text for education, sociology, and women's studies courses that address these issues.
